The Life Sciences Program provides a common series of courses for all life science majors at UW. So whether you are a life science major in the College of Agriculture, Arts & Sciences or Health Sciences, you will likely enroll in a LIFE course at some point in your college career. Courses in the Life Sciences Program offer a cutting-edge view of biology and biological research and are taught by some of the most respected teachers at UW. Although the Life Sciences Program does not offer a major, a wide range of life science majors can be pursued at UW. For more information on specific life science majors, contact the College of Agriculture, Arts & Sciences or Health Sciences.
